‘A leader is like a shepherd’

‘A leader is like a shepherd’As a leader I have always endeavoured to listen to what each and every person in a discussion had to say before venturing my own opinion. Oftentimes, my own opinion will simply represent a consensus of what I heard in the discussion. I always remember the axiom: a leader is like a shepherd. He stays behind the flock, letting the most nimble go out ahead, whereupon the others follow, not realizing that all along they are being directed from behind. I learned that courage was not the absence of fear but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. As I have said, the first thing is to be honest with yourself. You can never have an impact on society if you have not changed yourself. Great peacemakers are all people of integrity, of honesty but humility. - Excerpted from the ‘Long Walk to Freedom’ by the former South African president, Nelson Mandela

19 Nov 2012Hindustan Times (Delhi)Bhadra Sinha letters@hindustantimes.com6th PAY COMMISSION Accuse govt of overlooking proposals of panel by drawing a line between two categories of officersNEW DELHI: A group of retired Indian Foreign Services officers has moved the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT), accusing the government of overlooking the original recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission by drawing a unilateral line between two categories of officers and giving one among them huge pensionary benefits. Illustration: ABHIMANYU SINHAThe petitioners, who retired as under-secretaries and deputy secretaries from the ministry of external affairs (MEA), claimed that the government’s discriminatory decision has benefited officers who retired as directors — just one grade above the applicants — with a 74% hike in pensionary benefits. In comparison, the petitioners got a hike of just 21%. The retired officers, who call this a gross violation of the right to equality, want the tribunal t…

The jharoo saga:

The jharoo saga: For the sake of the environment it's time to bid farewell to this domestic aide
By Chitra Narain | Nov 14, 2012, 12.00 AM IST
There have been four distinct stages in my 75-year association with the jharoo. First, the girlish impulse to emulate our sexy cleaning woman (i won't use the derogatory word "jamadar" commonly used in the Raj days). I thought then, that this was a most exciting profession, as she stooped low, jharoo in hand, casting come-hither glances at our platoon of servants and chaprasis, who would hover around her while she executed her task with the grace of a dancer.

Later, this fascination gave way to despair and anger, when married and a young householder, i would find dust and scraps in every nook and cranny. A favourite stow away place was under the only Mirzapuri carpet we owned, the pride of our railway colony bungalow. Needless to say, i was left to complete her work, since our cook made it clear that this was not his job. This …
